How to Make an Easy and Elegant Low Bun

Using only three products (hairspray, an elastic, and bobby pins) you probably already have in your bathroom, follow these easy steps so you can whip up a simple, yet super-sophisticated updo in under five minutes.

What You Need

  1. Check Elastics
  2. Check Hair spray
  3. Check Bobby pins

Follow These Steps

  1. Start with dry hair. Spritz on a lightweight hair spray to add hold and tame frizz or flyaways.

  2. Secure a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck.

  3. Pull it tighter underneath the base to ensure it stays in place.

  4. Divide the ponytail into two sections.

  5. Twist the two sections until you reach the end of the ponytail. Secure with a hair elastic, then, using your hands, rough up the twist to create volume (this will help your bun look bigger).

  6. Wrap the twist around the base of your ponytail, forming a bun.

  7. Secure the bun with a few bobby pins.

  8. Pull out a few pieces around your face for a soft, romantic touch.

  9. Finish with hair spray—ta da.
